The Akanskha Fund is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization raising support and awareness for the education of children from underserved communities in India. We currently serve 8,000 children in Mumbai and Pune through model schools that provide holistic training and alumni support programs. By 2028, we are poised to impact 1 million children across 10 cities. At Akanskha, we believe in the transformative power of education. We need your commitment to support our growing ambition.

An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs. Many corporations match employee donations to our organization. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a volunteer grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. 

You can use the search box above to see if your company offers these programs. You will also find links to submit requests for your current or past donations (within a stipulated time range) to be matched.
